What the fuck? I just heard the new Kanye track and I don't even like Drake but he's completely jacking his flow and everything. It's ridiculous how blatant it is. And suddenly in the middle of the song he does a blatant imitation of Future with the vocoder on. What a psycho.
Yeah maybe in the present Drake is more related to that style but the point still stands that Kanye pretty much allowed the Pop Rap genre to gain mainstream success which it was getting at the time but in 2008, there wasn't much except for your occasional black eye peas. I think theres really no reason to complain because its still a new track that is really nice which we've needed from Kanye for a while and this song sounds a lot different from most of Drake's recent shit actually because Drake is a lot more pumped and energetic recently.
Also Parties in LA sounds nothing like Drake so.

Pop Rap has been a thing for a long time before 2008, Kanye himself was influenced by Kid Cudi on that 808's (and that's coming from someone who enjoys that album)
Plus that has nothing to do with shamelessly imitating Drake and Future on this track
Name one Drake song or Future song that is at all relatable to Real Friends?
Drake's much different than this, and I'm a big Drake fan and would be defending him at the minute if this was true.
Do you know what a flow is?
Show me a song by Drake, or Future, which has the same flow as Kanye in this song.

He's clearly doing the spit one bar and abruptly stop for another. Then the way he elongates the last part of a phrase. Plus many other things, as well as the chill type beat.
>That's Ty Dolla $ign
Okay, I didn't know that, that explains it
'chill type beat'
You have no idea what you're talking about. Seriously, stop trying to look cool on the internet and just enjoy good music. No one is impressed by how contrarian you are.
here's the guy who mentioned Cudi's influence having a discussion with himself about it, probably. ;D
but yeah man, Cudi has a few songwriting credits and based on anecdotal shit in the thread i linked, probably was around for a lot of the writing and recording.
it's not at all unreasonable to think Kanye brought him in specifically because he wanted to incorporate aspects of his aesthetic into the album. really that's the only reasonable explanation for Cudi being so involved, IMO.
even if you're talking about the present, drake was inspired by kanye and nobody said shit about it. now that kanye is inspired by other artists he is "ripping them off". you people are so dumb sometimes.
